The ITR Is Leaving, Der’s M3 Finally Runs, I Drive My Q45 & MORE!! CHRNCLS Vlog 2021 #7…

SURPRISE! Here’s a brand new episode for you sooner than you probably expected!! That’s because so much is going on at the shop lately that I was able to compile a good amount of content all in about a week’s time. Major changes are going on in the back of the shop so we actually went and pulled all of our cars out—and that hardly ever happens! The departure of Chuy’s ITR may have been the catalyst to this change, but honestly, it was time for Yuta to figure out ways to make more space with so many projects coming in and out. Der’s been wanting to get his M3 going so he can finally sell it and while my Q45 was out, I just decided to clean it up and drive it around for the weekend. On top of all the cars getting moved around, we also stopped by a couple of meets and ran into some pretty interesting builds. There’s some classic Japanese goodness in there, some super cars we’ll never be able to afford, and we cap things off at the annual “EF vs DA Meet” hosted by Oldskoolhonda and Kenji from GReddy Performance. This one is a real treat if you’re a car enthusiast and an even more interesting video for those who have always wondered what our cars looked like outside. You don’t want to miss this one!!

GReddy GPP Live 2020 Event Coverage…

There’s no SEMA event this year due to the ongoing “situation” we’re all going through, but I don’t know if I really miss it or not. On one hand, I do enjoy being in Las Vegas. Meeting up with industry friends is always nice and eating/drinking an insane amount throughout the week always makes things interesting. On the flip side, I don’t miss the crowds, the transportation to and from the show is always a bit of a headache, and to put it simply, I kind of enjoy saving money for other stuff. It’s funny because most of us who have been in the industry for some time now always bitch about not wanting to go to SEMA, but then we always end-up going and kinda having a good time. It’s a lot of work but it has its quirks that make life interesting enough where we do look forward to heading back to Vegas annually…

Totally forgot I had these photos on my desktop with all that’s been going on lately. Businesses are starting to open back up, the whole country seems to be divided on social issues, and people are starting to ignore that there is a pandemic happening still. Meanwhile over here at the office, I’m just trying to stay busy and maintain a business while still very much focusing on everything that is happening in the world. 2020 has been pure insanity for everyone but I’m hopeful that we are returning to at least some bit of normalcy. It’s a ‘new’ normal, I guess you can say…

Noel’s Varis FR-S Turbo & We Finally Work On My IS300…CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #16

Man, there have been a lot of red cars popping-up at the shop lately… On this episode, we finally pull my collection of Japanese Altezza parts that I’ve been collecting over the years out of storage to install on my IS300 Sportcross. A Zero Auto Factory prototype vented hood came over stateside recently so we had to make sure it fit on U.S.-model IS300s because of the 2JZ-GE engine we have here. A few days after that, my good friend Noel Barnum came by to hang and chat so we do a deep dive into his incredibly well-built Varis widebody FR-S which is equipped with a GReddy turbo kit.
